Oklahoma State Recruiting: In The Film Room-Keenen Brown

Oklahoma State 2014 commit Keenen Brown has the skill set that could make him one of the next great receivers in the Cowboy lineage. - Student Sports

The best fade route receiver since Justin Blackmon? Potentially. With a similar frame to Blackmon and current Cowboy Jhajuan Seales, the ceiling on this Houston area receiver is incredibly high already.

Besides Blake Jackson, there has not been a suitable fade route candidate since Justin Blackmon left campus. Enter Keenen Brown. The Alief Taylor High School (Houston) receiver has that special ability that not all receivers have, and that is to create receptions for himself in tight areas. Yes, Blake Jackson would currently be a good target, but due to the lack of playing time that Jackson has faced this season, there is once again an open spot for the "jump ball" man.

Brown has the frame that would allow him to add about 15 more pounds, which would allow him not only to be able to be a great athletic wideout, but also a great physical receiver. Fortunately, Brown does not only possess this one attribute. Brown adds a vertical threat that the Cowboys have been missing greatly this season. Part of that, yes can be blamed on the play at the quarterback positon, but Brown could develop into a receiver that would only need a ball put in his direction and it be up to him to go up and get it.

The potential behind Brown is incredible. He ranges from having the ability of what current Cowboy Jhajuan Seales possesses, to having that special spark, to put him in the Blackmon-esque category. That is very high praise for this prospective Cowboy, but somewhere in between that range, is a fair assessment of Brown's current and future ability. I give the Cowboy commit four stars.
